I thought poo was considered lucky in Korea. Something about the resemblance between the word for poo and the word for gold.

Or am I confused...?

Looks more like a caterpillar to me. BTW there's no resemblance to "poo" and the word "gold" in Korean. I think you got it confused with exaggeration to describe the color of the healthy poo.
Although back in old times people used to give -poo names to children as a way hide them from devil's bad luck. They were given better names after they grew up.
